Camera: Nikon D60

Lens: Sigma 70-300mm f4.0-5.6

Aperture: f 5.0

Shutter speed: 1/1600

ISO: 200

Description: The silhouette of the Long-Crested Eagle blends with that of the trees - slightly camoflaged yet still clearly visible

Story from behind the lens: Shot at 7:50am with strong sunlight creating a silhouetted image, emphasised by black and white post-processing. I shot several close ups of this juvenile eagle but loved the composition when he landed between the dead branches of a tree and posed perfectly in profile.
